Despite increased awareness about autism spectrum disorders (ASD), and its acknowledged increased prevalence in the USA and worldwide, there is relatively little translational information available that links core pathological findings to pathophysiological mechanisms that could be targeted by novel therapeutic interventions. This book describes some of the standard methods for diagnosing and treating autism from the perspectives of pediatric clinical psychology and developmental-behavioral specialists. Furthermore, the book reviews the theoretical basis for research focusing on neuromodulation techniques, such as repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS), transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), neurofeedback, and sensory integration training methods, being used for the treatment of ASD. The result is a collective monograph of 16 chapters contributed by autism specialists and edited by Estate (Tato) Sokhadze, Ph.D. and Manuel F. Casanova, M.D. This is a softcover book, with 34 figures and 10 tables whose cover illustration, features a painting by a famous autistic artist. The book is intended for students, researchers, and healthcare practitioners who are interested in the best ways to introduce neuromodulation, neurofeedback, and sensory integration techniques as interventions in their treatment armamentarium of autism spectrum disorder.
